I have just had an apple oat strawberry smoothie. The taste didn’t blow me away but it was certainly a whole lot easier to get down than the green concoction I made yesterday. Just thinking about yesterday’s green smoothie is nearly as horrifying as the actual taste of the stuff.
I’m feeling more than reasonably okay at the present moment, which is to say I don’t feel weak and hungry or like I have too much sugar in my system. I’m a little sleepy and my left eye has a weird strain but otherwise I feel okay.
My stomach is still looking smaller and feeling softer to me than before I started this juice fast. Like I said in one of yesterday’s update posts, I can feel other components of my stomach where before all I could feel were the fibroids.

September 1 2012: I thought I’d update this post because I was reading it and realized I wrote it on the morning of day 14 of my 21 day juice fast and I’ve written in some other posts that I bailed on the juice fast on day 14. Maybe it was day 15 that I bailed but I do think it was on Day 14, so I have to wonder how a day that started out with me feeling “more than reasonably okay” ended with me overeating and deciding to give up on the juice fast. I can’t really remember what happened that day; but in checking another of my blogs it is clear I was very unhappy on this day. I was complaining about not knowing who I am and where I’m going.
